Craft Beer Week, Beer Obstacle Course, & MT Brew Fest all During BeerNow19 – Great Falls Craft Beer Week featuring Mighty Mo Brewing Co., Jeremiah Johnson Brewing, and Black Eagle Brewery seems to be a natural for the first Beer Obstacle Course I’ve ever heard of.
The kick-off event to Craft Beer Week is a fun, but challenging Beer Obstacle Course. Local gyms, climbing centers, and even furniture stores provide the obstacles and we provide the “hydration stations” between the obstacles. Attendee’s get to have a taste of some local beer to help get them through the course while the “spectator section” enjoys live music, food, and a selection of local brews as well.
Check out the events at their website www.gfcraftbeerweek.com.
National Homebrew Day was designated by Congress May 7th in 1988. The American Homebrewers Association (AHA) created the Annual Big Brew event to celebrate National Homebrew Day around the world. Big Brew happens each year on the first Saturday in May. Anyone can host a Big Brew event, so invite your family and friends, and join in the global celebration.
Don’t miss the simultaneous toast at 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT on May 4, 2019!
